  1. 📝 10 Quick Tips for a Great Mastodon Experience: meiert.com/en/blog/mastodon-quick-tips/
  2. Not using @Twitter anymore in protest of treatment of Twitter employees (by the richest man in the world, no less) Will add infos to each account where to follow instead nytimes.com/2022/11/03/technology/twitter-layoffs-elon-musk.html
  3. Probably the best reason to pack up We end up endorsing this conduct (Already paused ad spending, feel like it’s time to call it. You can also find me at mastodon.social/@j9t.) @GergelyOrosz/1587850101246070784
  4. So love that #divtober is limited to a single HTML element You probably already know why, but to maintain suspense, I’ll share some thoughts about this in the upcoming edition of “Upgrade Your HTML IV” (leanpub.com/upgrade-your-html-4) ;) @lynnandtonic/1574775248062332928
  5. ⚡️ How to Order CSS Selectors (updated): I synced this article again with the HTML spec, and edited it to read nicer. If you have suggestions where to put <template> and <slot>, please share—the “metadata” section seemed fitting, but this is tricky. meiert.com/en/blog/how-to-order-css-selectors/
  6. Developer in me: That’s super-interesting, tell me more Privacy-minded citizen in me: Are you kidding @dsiroker/1587415342896148480
  7. AFAIK Google hasn’t had a standards-conformant homepage (using valid HTML and CSS), except for one That homepage is google.cn, and to my surprise, it’s still up I set it up in 2010, when Google pulled out of China. I thought Google had long, well, spiced it up ;)
    oh my god twitter doesn’t include alt text from images in their API
  8. My favorites from curating frontenddogma.com this week—one, because it asks an important question: Is There Too Much CSS Now?, by @SachaGreif (@css), featured on @frontenddogma: css-tricks.com/is-there-too-much-css-now/
  9. Finding Twitter contacts on Mastodon: fedifinder.glitch.me/ @kaffeeringe/1586503927155273731
  10. Tweets that sound like me: “I’m a developer, but I only know HTML and CSS.” 😂 Via tweethunter.io/generate-tweets, h/t @SaraSoueidan
    oh my god twitter doesn’t include alt text from images in their API
  11. Minimal HTML, a thread 👉 First, look at this page (in Firefox—more in a second): hell.meiert.org/temp/magic/
    oh my god twitter doesn’t include alt text from images in their API
  12. This is an awesome book, highly recommended for anyone engaging with other developers—there are few people who could give a picture as comprehensive as @codepo8 🙏 (My pleasure to help make it available as an ebook!) @codepo8/1585383416958451712
  13. How useful is a glossary about web development to you, as an ebook? (This is anonymous, so even if you know that I’m providing exactly that, please answer! Thank you :)


  1. #HTML. How many (and which) elements have been part of every single version of HTML? Only 15: a, address, dd, dl, dt, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, li, p, title, ul. All elements of HTML, over time, with additional information: meiert.com/en/indices/html-elements/.
  2. #HTML. At @Google, @tonyruscoe and I had once run a series to explain all elements of HTML: #htmltuesday. Years later, the tweets aren’t only still mostly accurate, but it may have been useful to archive them on one page, too: meiert.com/en/blog/htmltuesday/.
  3. 11 years ago, I rebuilt @Google’s error page. A short story.
    oh my god twitter doesn’t include alt text from images in their API
  4. #CSS #layout. What should you use: Grid, Flexbox, positioning, floats, the table model, x? My view: If it works (← this is the interesting piece!), it doesn’t matter. The beauty of valid CSS is that there’s really only a “wrong” when it makes content harder to access.
  5. #Visions and #goals. A small project I helped with, theothermanifesto.org/, and some extra thoughts now on Medium: medium.com/@j9t/humanity-and-the-other-manifesto-6811e28a54aa.
  6. #CSS #Optimization Basics: leanpub.com/css-optimization-basics. My latest little book, covering mindsets needed for writing effective style sheets, optimization options during operation and for production, and useful resources to aid and inform the work with CSS. (Pay what you want.)
